American Airlines passenger behind ‘not real’ viral tirade that delayed travelers for hours ID’d as marketing executive

The outburst came out of thin air… pods.

The woman behind the epic airplane meltdown where she proclaimed “that motherf—r back there is not real” to bemused fellow passengers is a Texas marketing executive who told cops the rant was sparked by an argument over wireless headphones.

Tiffany Gomas, a Dallas resident, was kicked off the plane following her bizarre outburst which led to hours of delays for other passengers, documents reviewed by The Post show.

Despite claiming “I’m getting the f—k off, and there’s a reason why I’m getting the f—k off” in the viral video of her storming up and down the plane aisle, the 38-year-old was not willing to leave the American Airlines flight and had to be removed by staff, according the police documents.

Before heading toward the front of the plane, Gomas added in her address to passengers: “You can sit on this plane and you can f—ing die with them or not. I’m not going to.”

The argument had started when Gomas fell out with relatives she was traveling with, accusing them of stealing her AirPods, the cops said.

“The female then started claiming the aircraft was not safe and did not want the aircraft to leave due to her believing it would not make it to its destination,” the July 2 complaint reads.

“Due to the statements the flight attendants felt the aircraft needed to be rescreened. (The airline manager) explained that the passenger was denied boarding and they wanted her escorted to the public side.”

All the other passengers on Flight 1009 from Fort Worth to Orlando were then made to deplane so they could be screened through security again as a precaution because of the the nature of Gomas’ complaints.

“TSA personnel arrived at the scene to conduct a full rescreening of the aircraft,” the paperwork revealed.

By the time officers arrived at the gate, Gomas was “distraught” and trying to get back onto the plane. When Dallas-Fort Worth Department of Public Safety cops tried to speak to Gomas, she refused.

“(The airline manager) gave Gomes a verbal criminal trespass notice, explaining she was denied boarding and needed to depart the secure area,” investigators noted.

The rejected passenger was eventually escorted to the non-secure area of the airport, but that didn’t stop her from attempting to come back through TSA screening and into the boarding area multiple times, the documents say.

Police eventually tracked Gomas down to the terminal curb, where she was sitting and waiting for an Uber.

She was given a ticket for criminal trespass notice which she refused to sign. Gomas did not show police her ID, the complaint states. She was never formally arrested or taken into custody. Through a representative, Gomas declined to give comment on the incident to The Post.

Although her reputation has taken a hit, at least legally Gomas is likely in the clear.

“The viral video if the stunning part of it, but I doubt you’re going to see some big prosecution over it,” Austin Attorney Adam Loewy told The Post.

Public records show Gomas lives in a $2 million home in city’s coveted Lakewood neighborhood.

She is a marketing executive who served as vice president of Elevate Brand Marketing, where she was named a “rising star” in 2017 by a trade publication.

“Tiffany has built a sales portfolio and track record that rivals account managers with decades in the business,” co-worker Dave Sedlin told the outlet.

The Oklahoma State University graduate advised young people starting in her industry to “roll with the punches” and “work hard and play hard,” in the accompanying profile.
